Interesting that the Ovation is still planning on its January 3 voyage which is from Hong Kong to Singapore.  Most foreigners are not currently allowed entry to both of those without a 14 day quarantine.  That could change before January 3 but given the way the US is handling COVID who knows.

As one currently imprisoned in Singapore I wouldn't get your hopes up for any changes in entry requirements here in the foreseeable future, by which I mean perhaps H2 2021. Singapore has managed to hammer out reciprocal travel arrangements for dignitaries to about 4 different countries with a list of preconditions which would make your head spin and it's possible, just possible that some kind of tourist bubbles with other Asean countries might happen late this year or early next (Malaysia probably the most possible as it's the closest); but I don't see general tourism restarting here any time soon. 


HK I don't know about. They kind of have less reason to open up to the world as they aren't so reliant on tourism in the first place. 


I'd give a Seabourn cruise between HK and Singapore in Jan 2021 about a 1% chance of happening.

Agreed.  The same offer for our April 2021 cruise and an automatic booking for the same itinerary April 2022.  Not acceptable!

We booked the April 2021 cruise as a means to get from the US to Rotterdam in comfort to connect to a Viking River cruise that started in May 2021.  I just took a look at our profile under My Bookings - Upcoming cruises and I have a booking number for the same itinerary a year later and to contact the booking agency for payment schedule.  The original booking was paid in full.  We want a cash refund.  Nice of Seabourn to just assume that we would want to reschedule...NOT!


Our December 2021 cruise on Seabourn that was also paid in full has been canceled by them for which we are still waiting for a refund.


Anyone else in the same situation?

Actually, the Quest will be doing South America/Antarctica again next season due to the delay of the Venture as I understand it. 

Yes indeed. Quest was scheduled to sail the Caribbean November 2021 - March 2022 but those sailings have now been cancelled and she’s being redeployed to Antarctica. Venture is launching December 2021 but she’s scheduled to stay up north sailing the Norwegian fjords in winter... now there’s something new!

I see that the Ovation recently changed position and has now joined the Quest and the Sojourn off the coast of Cyprus. Must be quite a sight and probably an OK place to sit out the winter.
